Using special equipment, small particles of fiberglass insulation are blown into enclosed existing walls, unfinished attic space, and other hard to reach areas. Its ability to conform to any space at any desired thickness without disturbing structures or finishes makes this product ideal for adding additional insulation to existing finished areas or getting adequate coverage in irregularly shaped spaces or around obstructions.
Fiberglass batt insulation is the most common and widely available type of insulation. Coming in precut sizes and at many different desired thicknesses, it can be installed in unfinished walls, floors and ceilings between studs, joists and beams. Manufacturers often adhere kraft, foil or vinyl facing to the fiberglass which acts as a vapor barrier and is used to secure batts in place.
Closed cell foam is a premium liquid foam insulation product that is sprayed in place and expands to fill the space around it and hardens as it cures, reducing leakage and effectively creating an air barrier. Because of its density, spray foam can provide much more R-value than fiberglass in smaller spaces.
While temperature control is usually what comes to mind when thinking about insulation, unfaced fiberglass or mineral wool insulation batts can help reduce sound transmission between walls, floors, and ceilings.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove older material before a project can be properly insulated due to moisture damage, smoke damage, or rodent contamination. Using a high powered vacuum older material can be collected and disposed of to make way for new insulation to be installed.
Install approved materials to holes and gaps in wall and ceiling cavities in order to prevent the free passage of flames from one area of a building to another through concealed spaces. Sealing these gaps slows, or may even stop, the spread of flames, smoke and gases.
Using specialized equipment our certified technicians can quantify the amount of air leakage through a structure’s enclosure and/or HVAC systems. The readings generated by running this test can be used to provide documentation required for code compliance in certain jurisdictions.
Intumescent paint is coated over closed cell spray foam that is going to be left exposed for passive fire protection. It reacts to heat by swelling in a controlled manner to many times its original thickness providing an extra layer of material between insulation and a heat source.
